Nonfiction Startup [Erin Sroka]
Come with a shiny new idea or a clunky third draft, and we’ll get your project moving forward. Class exercises will include strategies for focusing in on the core of your story as well as developing your draft with clarity and purpose. We’ll discuss the basic elements of creative nonfiction, such as character, voice, and scene, and practice using them as tools for telling stories. We’ll read leading nonfiction voices for inspiration and hold a workshop for gathering feedback.
